    I'm looking to buy a large SD card for my 2DS running CFW on emunand with RXtools. The bigger the better.

    1. Does the 2DS/3DS support 128GB cards? I read an article where a guy got this to work just by formatting it in fat32 at 32KB per cluster. Is there anything that would prevent a card this size from working with CFW?

    2. Does it have to be Fat32 format? I know a lot of Windows OS's won't let you format a volume in FAT larger than 32GB.

    3. Does it accept all SD types? SD, SDHC, SDHC and SDXC. Seems most of the cards over 64 GB are SDXC.

    4. Can anyone provide a recommendation? I was looking at one of these.

    1: Yes
    2: Yes and best way to format it is using Easus Partition manager
    3: All cards 64gb+ should be SDXC and they work im using 64gb atm with 32k cluster
    4: Best reccomendation is a Samsung EVO as they use MLC memory so better card life
